Does not appear to be a way to disable push notifications or the pop up ads when trying to read a story. And yes, I'm a paid subscriber. One would reasonably have the expectation the pop up ads would go away / not be happening once a subscription has been purchased. One would be wrong in the case of this application, the ads just keep coming (with more apparent frequency once you start to use it). Very, very disappointing. I'll NOT be renewing my subscription at the end of it's current term.

Paragraphs cut out after a certain number of characters so articles are incomplete to the point of being unreadable at times. The app crashes all the time forcing me to log in repeatedly. The interface is basic and makes it hard to pick through to find the good stuff. The lack of a search function is a glaring issue too. I got this subscription in order to support local news, but the app just isn't functional enough to be usable.

There is no way to customize notifications in the app (of course you can in Android settings, though). Notifications are an all-or-nothing proposition. I'm going to have to go with "nothing" which may make me forget I have the app, which may reduce my value as a subscriber, which may make me cancel my subscription. Also, the app is just clunky! When clicking on an article (from a notification that I'm about to disable), it reauthenticates every time, causing a severe pause in the display.
